Tattoos are Token of Love

Posted by Disha Singh on February 17, 2009

Tanya from Ont., Canada, got this bright Chest Tattoo from Denis Prevost of Live Once Tattoos.

Tanya says, “I just wanted something bright and bold and I gave Denis’ the reigns on this one the only thing I was looking for was his name in it since he was Brave enough to get mine on his neck.”

Her tattoo matches her body and personality.


Memory Tattoo

Posted by Disha Singh on July 31, 2008

The first time I saw this tattoo I just fell in for it….after digging deep my heart became heavy to know this great piece is in a memory of someone who left this world to rest in peace. Beautiful lines, worth reading….Don’t miss.

William Schaff, an artist by profession, etched this memory tattoo on his back by TJ Mcinnis of Mcinnis Tattoo, Rhode Island, US.

William got this tattoo after the death of someone he cared for, he explains this tattoo as,

“It is a piece of writing that Josh Spinelli did, in an effort to describe himself. In reading it after he died, I felt strongly about the words, as though I could have written them myself and my own search. Knowing they were from him connected me that much more to a man I did not get to know long enough.”

Disha Singh: Your comment about the tattoo.

William: I miss you Josh, and hope you are at peace.

William wears many other tattoos among which there are many words/ lines on his arms.


Palm Tattoo: Screaming Hand

Posted by Disha Singh on June 16, 2008

Brian Thrasher from California, USA is a hard core skater, who has inked the art of Jim Phillips, the screaming hand, on his palm by Zombie Tattoo in Norco Ca.

Being a skateboarding aficionado his fingers wears “sk8 or die” tattoo.

However, palm tattoo is not common because of its least durability. You’ll have to try hard to find out tattooed palms. There are several reasons behind its paucity — it’s painful, prone to diseases and fall out faster because the skin on your hands regenerates faster than other body parts.

When asked about his palm tattoo, he said, “Yes it has faded but it still is pretty good for a palm tattoo I have a touch up session planned soon.”

So, all you people out there if ever you had thought for a new place to etch your skin, it can be your hand with much pain and less colorful life but most unusual placement! 🙂


Tribal Wolf Tattoo

Wolf tattoo

Here is a tribal wolf tattoo on the arm of Varun Sadana from Banglore, India. We know every tattoo has some meaning and significance whether that symbolism is worldwide prevailing or a very personal reason to etch a tattoo. The reason be any but it is undeniable that the vogue of tattoo is rapidly slipping into India from western countries and day by day we see new colorful bodies.

This piece is inked by Pradeep Menon, Bangalore.
